Anjum, the tea lounge and day bar is quite literally the constellation of beverages. Shimmering with ornate murals and comfortable lounge style sofas all around, the view from Anjum of the majestic willow Stream Spa gleaming against the azure pool is a sight to behold. Anjum is the casual hotspot of Fairmont Jaipur where you can relax with your cup of tea over easy conversation. The palatial space is an extension of the grand lobby with its high ceilings, ornate hand painted mural and cheerful sofas. Serving an unrivalled selection of authentic, high quality teas from around the world, Fairmont Jaipur’s lobby lounge brings a new dimension of service to the fine art of tea drinking. The long standing Fairmont tradition of afternoon teas has been given an authentically local twist in the living palace. Since tea is such an integral part of the Indian experience Anjum excels at the art of infused teas with the live ‘Masala Chai’ station offering the quintessential ‘Adrak Wali Chai’ – the Indian adaptation of ginger infused tea. For those who like something stronger there is the famed “Meter Coffee” which is named after the distance between the cup and the pot- a most dramatic experience where the coffee is literally poured a meter away from your cup at your table. With all this and more, to say that Anjum is a haven for tea and coffee connoisseurs is an understatement. Anjum also hosts tea tasting sessions with Fairmont tea sommeliers assisting guests in their extensive choice of finest quality teas from India and the World. For coffee lovers the menu also includes a vast range of specialty world coffees including exquisite single origin coffees. Here the menu is designed around the beverages so that each aspect of the single origin tea can be enhanced with light delicate offerings that compliment the fine teas and coffees. A variety of small bites, light snacks and desserts that celebrate the traditional jewellery of Rajasthan are served throughout the day at Anjum. Come evening and Anjum transforms from a bustling lobby lounge into a romantic evening lounge with the stars on the ceiling twinkling away as couples enjoy intimate conversations in the company of fine spirits. Tea based drinks are also created by the expert bartenders for those who prefer a traditional twist and the exquisite champagne cocktail menu is an indulgence few can resist especially when accompanied by the gorgeous Fort Lighting Ceremony that takes place just outside Anjum each evening.
